Play Ball!

It is so hard sometimes to come up with birthday card ideas for men.
My brother has a birthday in July, and I finished his card already!
I have had this idea running around in my head for awhile now,
and since my memory is not what it used to be, I thought I should
get "on the ball" and get this project done!

I used the Baseball cart for the baseball, pitcher, bat,
glove, field, and sentiment background.
The star is from HD, the happy birthday is welded in DS
 and I used the "tall ball" font from PS,  and the mustache is from PDDU.

With all the glitter and metallic papers that were used, this card really shines!

The mats that hold the sentiment are edged with a puch
and the golden layer is CB embossed to look somewhat like wood.

There is a lot of embossing and popping on this card to give
it that added dimensional look.
Of course, I have once again used my favorite easel design.

The finished size of this card is 5 1/2 x 8".
A personal message tucked into an inside fold....
and this card is complete!
Take me out to the ball game.....take me out to the crowd!

    1. Please consider turning off word verification. It would make leaving comments so much easier.

    2. Candy,
      I did turn off the verification so it should make leaving comments easier. I agree with you; I don't like having to go thru all that extra work either! Thanks for your suggestion and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoying my creativity.
